 Texas State athletic director Larry Teis announced Monday that Brad Wright has been relieved of his duties as head football coach for the Bobcats.

 “We appreciate the progress Brad has made with our program in the last four years,” said Teis. “This decision was tough to make because he is a good man and a good family man. But, I felt it was necessary to make a change at this time.”

 Texas State president Denise Trauth added, “I wish Brad Wright well as we go down the road of identifying new leadership for our football program.”

 Wright ended his tenure with a record of 23-23 in his four seasons as head coach at Texas State. He began his collegiate head coaching career with a 4-7 record before leading the Bobcats to an 8-5 record in 2008 and a 7-4 mark in 2009. Texas State began the 2010 season winning three of its four non-conference games before finishing the year with just one win against Southland Conference teams.

Texas State will begin a national search to find a replacement immediately.
